Ralph Rylance (1782-1834) arrived in London in 1806, hoping for literary success but settling for work as a researcher, translator, indexer, editor, ghost-writer, and proofreader, principally for the firm of Longman. The present study, based on Longman's records and Rylance's own correspondence, provides a glimpse into the day to day life of this somewhat atypical, but very remarkable Regency hack.
